With the DocuSign cloud solution, documents can be electronically signed, processed, and sent. This makes the software a practical tool for companies, especially now in times of crisis, to be able to work efficiently and without contact from home. Even these uncertain times do not change the importance of signatures.
Up until now, anyone requiring a signature from their business partner for documents such as contracts, quotations, or order confirmations usually relied on the tedious old paper form. First you have to print out the document, sign it and then send it by post to the recipient, who must countersign the document. This person also has to write their signature on the document and send it back again.
It is also possible to print out the document, sign it, scan it, and then send it by fax or email to the countersignatory, who will repeat the same process. Both processes are complex and cost time, money, and large amounts of paper, as many contracts contain 20 or more pages. In addition, all participants must have a printer and scanner or fax machine. This makes things difficult when, like now, many employees are working from home.
Users only require an internet-capable end device, as the cloud solution works via the browser. No additional software needs to be installed. If desired, however, companies can integrate the solution into their existing systems, such as SAP, Salesforce, or Office 365. T-Systems is the German contract and service partner of DocuSign and supports companies with comprehensive consulting and implementation services. This makes T-Systems the only provider of an end-to-end solution in the field of electronic signatures. Use is also free of charge for recipients of the documents.
